Lancia Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufactured: 1955

A light motorcycle built in 1955 by Lorenzo Lancia of Biella with a DOHC 125cc engine which uses crankcase chamber suction to draw fresh air into the combustion chamber on the exhaust stroke via a valve in the flywheel, forcing burnt gasses from the cylinder and cooling the chamber in the process.



Double Overhead Cam
Many variations incuding belt, chain and bevel drive

It does not appear that many were built, nor is there evidence of it having entered competition.
